NFL Star, JJ Watt, made a silent donation of $10,000 to the GoFundMe page of a fallen first responder from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.

In the world where professional athletes are far from being role models, JJ Watt is one of the good guys.

He's always doing things to help out people in need.

JJ was born and raised in Wisconsin. He even played college football at the University of Wisconsin.

He currently plays in the NFL for the Houston Texans and is one of the best players in the league.

According to,

"A natural gas leak in downtown Sun Prairie led to an explosion Tuesday evening that claimed the life of Sun Prairie Fire Department Capt. Cory Barr. He leaves behind a wife and 3-year-old twin daughters."

Once again, JJ Watt steps up to lend a hand.

He donated $10,000 to the family of the firefighter.

Unlike a lot of celebrities who would have done a huge check presentation ceremony, Watt silently made his donation through a GoFundMe page set up for the family.

It's great to see that there are still good people out there.
